— 80% of 1100 pounds of LP (liquid propane) to fire whole-house furnaces, gas water heaters, wall unit in Bunkhouse. [You’re only allowed to fill any given sized tank up to 80% : tanks are full]
— Cord of seasoned red oak, split, stacked & ready to burn [Chimney sweep was here year before last, and we did not burn any wood last, so chimney is good to go]
— 30 gallons of NON-ethanol gasoline for generators; the big generator– 5500 watts– can operate on 5 gals for quite some time if we are judicious about what we’re running. The little generator– 3000 watts– could run a long time if it only needed to power the small A/C / heater in the apartment bedroom
— Subsidiary power sources for non-essentials are charged. Like I have this awesome Ankar battery that can charge my phone, iPad, camera, etc. in nothing flat.
— Actual battery inventory isn’t perfect, but– compared to what most of you have– it’s awesome.
— Listening to the VoyagerPro weather radio just now and it’s alerting me just fine.
2-3″ of snow are expected!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In all seriousness, the biggest problem we have is that so much of infra-structure is outside.
It was 50+ degrees this afternoon. So we took the opportunity to purge the workshop of tarps, etc. We actually have a drain pipe that goes from the big tub in the Master to the outside of the house. On the outside of the house. On the west side. With at this time of year gets bout 20 minutes of sunshine. I took a few minutes to collect the top of a Weber grill that was abandoned in the shop, lined it with R19 & duct taped that contraption to the side of the hose with the exposed drain pipe. I then threw some old bathroom rugs on it, and covered it up with a tarp.
Humm… I turned on the NOAA weather radio.
As I am able I will check back.
And, yes, SueK. I am typing.
OMG. I forgot to mention that I had to invade the EMERGENCY bucket to get a roll of duct tape. Seems we’re out at the normal operating level.
That needs to be corrected.
